Industrial chemistry is the development, optimization and monitoring of fundamental chemical processes as used in industry for transforming raw materials and precursors into useful commercial products for society. It plays a vital role as an applied science in diverse areas that influence human society ranging from economic, environmental and political stability. This encyclopaedia focuses on industrial processes used in the production of major primary bulk chemicals and their secondary commercial products. Emphasis has been given on a holistic understanding of the relationship between natural resources, chemical transformation and waste generation for a sustainable future based on insights derived from green chemistry and environmental chemistry. The volumes contain important chemical processes used in industry, ranging from the large-scale production of bulk chemical commodities, industrial gases, fertilizers, explosives, petrochemicals and polymers. The book examine the current economic and environmental consequences of expanding industrial activity including ozone depletion, acid rain, global warming and endocrine-disrupting chemicals. It also focuses on emerging chemical technologies based on green chemistry principles, water recycling and alternative fuels. This encyclopaedia is an indispensable companion to the researchers, students and teachers of industrial chemistry.
